Thousands of public works professionals are expected to converge in Anaheim, California August 26-29, 2012 for the American Public Works Association (APWA) International Public Works Congress & Expo. This “Best Show in Public Works” annual conference gives attendees the chance to learn more about how public works shapes communities through education sessions on technology, applications, leadership, sustainability and infrastructure management.
This year Dan Hoying and Larry Sack, subject matter experts in emerging trends for roadway and traffic design, will be presenting on their experiences with recent innovations and best practices in public works. By sharing their experiences and connecting with other public works professionals, Dan and Larry are continuing to invest in the future of public works.
If you plan to attend this conference, be sure to add these presentations to your schedule on Tuesday August 28th.
Innovative Intersection Designs: Thinking Outside the Toolbox
Joined by FHWA representative Jim McCarthy and City of Fairfield’s city engineer Ben Mann, Dan Hoying will discuss his experience implementing Ohio’s first Quadrant Roadway Intersection at the State Route 4/State Route 4 Bypass intersection that solved a major capacity problem with little impact on adjacent development.
Implementing a Complete Streets Policy – From the Largest Cities to the Smallest Towns
Joined by a National Complete Streets Coalition workshop presenter, Paul Zykofsky, Larry Sack will use case studies to show how public agencies can implement a complete streets policy by following a four-step approach. Transforming a policy into operation can be a challenge, but following these implementation steps will help communities realize the benefits that come from adopting a complete street policy.
